Kotobukiya's Megami Device

For discussion of all the other girl+mecha lines that have cropped up since Shinki began: Frame Arms: Girls, Megami Device, Armor Girls Project, Desktop Army, etc. This includes kinda-sortas like Daibadi's Polynian and things like Strike Witches and Fumikane's original Mecha Musume.

I'm hyped for Megami Device girls :D I've already ordered the two starter kits and plan to order that new orange flight-capable girl, who has some of the most striking expressions :3

PSA: some model kit assemblers on Twitter reported hamhanding their Megami D girl's hip T-piece and needed to repair it with traditional gunpla pinning techniques.

That explains why Innocentia is getting POM wrists instead of ABS ones.

UPDATE: Megami Device - SOL Hornet 1/1 Plastic Model

Yes, Hornet's preorder is up. I'm gonna pick her up, she looks great.

In case you don't own one yet this review/build is very very detailed to show all the internals.
I'm still more impressed my Busou Shinki vs this new body when it comes to feeling solid and less likely to break. Yeah I know it's kit vs manufactured figure.
Also money value wise I'd still stick with the shinki for overall plastic for $$$. The bonus is these megami make really cheap bodies for spare shinki heads and also adding shinki armor to the bodies are pretty awesome. I can see if the shinki armors are too heavy, over time they may not hold up as well as their riveted sisters.


I will say Megami device is definitely getting it right super poseable, pretty durable and compatible with our original Shinki sisters!!

I could really use some help.
I'm a US collector and often I can't acquire limited parts.
For example, the Megami Device extra heads/ colors:
http://shop.kotobukiya.co.jp/shopdetail/000000003729/

KotoJP doesn't seem to ship internationally, I couldn't even register completely, and KotoUS often doesn't carry limited editions.
Any help or suggestions?

Thanks!
